3 Months and we have a nose, eyes and mouth in the Ultra Sound! Yipee

Well ladies and gentlemen we have made it through our first trimester so far, okay. I feel pretty good, except I am always tired. Oh and if I don't eat right away when I am hungry I get a little throw up happy, well I can't say happy...but you get the idea.

We had to change doctors because our insurance didn't cover the Midwife we were seeing. So I found a rather old school doctor in Provo and I really enjoy him. He was quick and funny and honest. I was worried about telling the doctor that I didn't want any prenatal testing done, fearing they would try to talk me into it. But I found that he was pleading a case against it before he even asked if I wanted any. So I felt so much better about that portion. I asked for an ultrasound since he has a machine in his office. He was backed up with clients since he was in emergency surgery with a lady earlier that day....but he was gracious and agreed. So we got another ultrasound and say little Rya or Mac move. It was very exciting to see limbs and see a nose and other facial features. It made it all that much more real to see the baby actually not look like a bean so much anymore. Hopefully things over the next could of weeks will get even better.

We are going to find out the sex of the baby for sure in December. Jon thinks it is a girl, but my parents want a boy so bad. I am just weirded out that I am pregnant still. But whatever we have I will be proud and excited all wrapped up in a little bun! My pants are getting tighter and that isn't a good feeling. I realize it will happen and it will only get worse, but come on! LOL When you can't fit maternity clothes just yet, this is annoying. Other than that I am excited because 6 of my friends and family are pregnant now. One of my old roommates is due just a week or so after me! Yipee!!!

Here is baby Campbell again!!

It really is really real! WOW

So this whole thing was never really honestly real to me before today. I mean sure, I had some morning sickness, dizziness and am always tired. But that didn't mean a whole lot until today. At my appointment I met one of the midwives and she was really great. She taught me a lot and asked me a ton of questions. I didn't get a full head to toe exam since I am only 9 weeks. I have another appointment on my 12 week day to get the full "detail". However she heard me say that I wanted a ultrasound so desperately today. So she said she would tell the hospital that we were not sure the due date so we needed to do an ultrasound to get a better idea. :) I measured nine weeks as of today, Wednesday. And my due date is now May 7th!

Seeing the baby and then hearing the heartbeat was by far one of the most amazing moments in my life thus far. I know that may sound stupid, but I have yet to stop smiling since we left the hospital. Thinking this is something that would never in a million years happen to us makes this even more of a miracle. Today started out really horrible, selling my wedding ring for way under price to pay bills was awful. I cried a lot, just because it was something that meant a lot to me. But it was cured for the time being seeing our little sticky bean on the screen! So here are some more of the pictures we got from him, one of them shows the heartbeat at 168.73 per minute, which he said was perfect! YAY
